What are some good softball team names made up of housekeepers??

We have a company team, but our department is Hotel housekeeping. What are some clever names we could use for our team?

Clean Sweeps for sure. That was the first thing that came to mind.

I was thinking the Clean-up Hitters.

If the team is horrible you could always go with Vacuum Runners, because they suck.

Clean Sweep is just perfect, props to Alpha Twit. My only suggestion would be to make it singular instead of plural; "Clean Sweep" vs. "The Clean Sweeps"

Problem is, "Take it to" usually means "beat badly." i.e., "Clemson really took it to Alabama last night; they beat Bama 44-16."

"Take it to the house" (which that suggestion is a riff on) is a football idiom, meaning to score a touchdown. It's not connected to the phrase "taking it to [team x]." Either way, it doesn't work although it would be great for a pickup football game made up of housekeepers.

Ah I see, I didn't see the pun.
